first off, i want to start off by saying this...you guys are awesome. i don't know if you know how much nora and i appreciate all of you. seriously, i know that sounds cheesy, but it's true. nora and i are constantly forwarding each other comments that have been emailed to us with little notes that just say, "cute" or "how sweet" or "awesome!" cause that's what you all are – cute, sweet and awesome! so i wanted to start off with that. thanks for all of your kind words and advice and quips every day. they really mean a lot to us.
ok, next on my list. do any of you have a mirror like mine? our bathroom mirror is like the snow white mirror. in my bathroom, at any given time, i am the fairest of them all. i have the best self esteem while i'm in my own bathroom. then i get to work, take one look in the fluorescent-lit bathroom mirror and realize that i'm not all that. stupid bathroom mirror, giving me false hope. i mean, it's not like i look in the mirror and see heidi klum, and then i get to work and i'm quasimoto...but there is something about the lighting that doesn't show wrinkles, under-eye bags or puffiness. do you ever wonder what it was like before mirrors were invented? i bet people had the best self-esteem. i also bet they had more important things to worry about than baggy eyes – like saber-tooth tigers and woolly mammoths. ok, enough about that, onto the next round...
i bought this top at a thrift store the other day. i spent a bit more on it that i normally would on a sweatshirt (a whopping $5.99!! curses!). but i love it – the design, the length, the off-the-shoulder 80s look it has – i had to have it. plus, it was hidden in the shorts section that i happened to pass it on my way to the check-out counter. it was meant to be mine. then i saw the label, it's a brand i've never heard of: truly. madly. deeply. i immediately thought of that dumb song (time to get another ditty in your head!) by savage garden. what kind of name is savage garden? i might have to do a little research on how they came up with that name. there is nothing savage about these guys. anyways, long story short, i am truly. madly. deeply. in love with my new sweatshirt.
|hey, look at the ground|
|now look over there|
|now look at me|
yeah, that's right, i'm rocking a two-pony fauxhawk. i'm prepping myself for the go-commando race i'm participating in tomorrow. don't mess with me. you don't want me to get all savage garden on you!
